PODCAST: FF 044 - Kingpen Slim, Asheru, Kokayi, & Blackberry Jones

You've never seen a podcast go up this fast! That's because last night's show was simply incredible. 2006 was the last time DC legend and emcee Asheru had visited the WRGW studios, a year before I joined the station. Three years later, my esteemed cohost Unkle Scooty runs into Asheru and convinces him to stop by the studio (thank goodness). On Saturday, I ran into Kingpen Slim backstage at LOVE and made sure he'd be joining us early on Thursday night. Then Kokayi calls me up on Tuesday, finds out Ash is hanging with us, and agrees to sit in on Thursday. Now that's what you call a successful three-hour show. 

Part one features our interview with Kingpen Slim, covering everything from his beginnings to his now-promising future. Part two features a special call-in from FWMJ (we tried to get donations for Rappers I Know, y'all failed) and the start of our conversation with Asheru, Kokayi, and special guest Blackberry Jones. Part three features the most poignant discussion we've had in months, the premiere of the Blackberry Jones x Michael Jackson remix project King of Chop, and a spectacular cypher with our three guests. Oh, and did I mention a special call-in from the newest member of the Low Budget Crew, Hassaan Mackey?

  1. Asheru was a panelist at a forum that discussed hip hop's rites of passage. Read it at http://alanwking.wordpress.com/2009/09/18/forum-discusses-hip-hops-rites-of-passage/
